fudge brownie mix
1/2 cup
Land O Lakes® Butter, melted
1/4 cup
water
3
large Land O Lakes® Eggs

Frosting

2 cups
powdered sugar
1/4 cup
Land O Lakes® Butter, softened

Marshmallows, mini candy-coated chocolate pieces, chocolate chips, red licorice and large gumdrops

Directions

  1. Heat oven to 350°F.
  2. Combine all cupcake ingredients in bowl. Stir until well mixed. Spoon into 12 paper-lined muffin cups. Bake 28-32 minutes or until tops spring back when touched lightly in center. Cool completely.
  3. Combine powdered sugar, 1/4 cup butter and vanilla in small mixer bowl. Beat at low speed, scraping bowl often and gradually adding enough milk for desired spreading consistency.
